The first of the lines to take on the full height of the slab in its entirety and one of the most coveted slabs in the Country. Start in the centre of the wall. Climb the initial overlaps to gain the base of the slab. Move up via a series of thin and precarious moves to reasonable protection at 15m. Continue on spaced thin breaks for 10m to a wide slot (medium cam). Climb past the slot to join and follow a hairline crack to the top of the wall. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
E12 7a!!!! Repeated and given E9 6c by Dave MacLeod. Take your pick!
James Pearson pulled the pegs of "Dyer Straits", the orignal line of Ian Vickers, and worked on the super hard direct start, "The Walk of Life". Pearson took 45 mins to ascend the route and succeeded on that attempt! The route starts at the bottom of the face, left of the right arete, and continues direct all the way to the top.
